Permanent Pacemaker Insertion After CoreValve Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation: Incidence and Contributing Factors (the UK CoreValve Collaborative)
Background— Permanent pacemaker (PPM) requirement is a recognized complication of transcatheter aortic valve implantation. We assessed the UK incidence of permanent pacing within 30 days of CoreValveExpand

Myocardial bridging on coronary CTA: an innocent bystander or a culprit in myocardial infarction?
Myocardial bridging describes the clinical entity whereby a segment of coronary artery is either partially or completely covered by surrounding myocardium. It represents the most frequent congenitalExpand

Threshold for the upper normal limit of indexed epicardial fat volume: derivation in a healthy population and validation in an outcome-based study.
Epicardial fat volume (EFV) quantified on noncontrast cardiac computed tomography relates to cardiovascular prognosis. We sought to define the upper normal limit of body surface area (BSA)-indexedExpand

Treadmill exercise in apparently asymptomatic patients with moderate or severe aortic stenosis: relationship between cardiac index and revealed symptoms
Objectives To test whether symptoms revealed on exercise testing in patients with moderate or severe aortic stenosis are associated with changes in left ventricular systolic function and toExpand

Relation of diagonal ear lobe crease to the presence, extent, and severity of coronary artery disease determined by coronary computed tomography angiography.
Controversy exists concerning the relation between diagonal ear lobe crease (DELC) and coronary artery disease (CAD). We examined whether DELC is associated with CAD using coronary computedExpand

Diagnosis and management of iatrogenic cardiac perforation caused by pacemaker and defibrillator leads
Aims Cardiac perforations caused by pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) leads are uncommon but potentially fatal events. The optimal approach to such cases is unclear. The aimExpand

Increase in epicardial fat volume is associated with greater coronary artery calcification progression in subjects at intermediate risk by coronary calcium score: a serial study using non-contrast
OBJECTIVE Epicardial fat volume (EFV) is related to calcified coronary plaques. However, it is unknown whether baseline EFV or changes in EFV affect the progression of coronary artery calcificationExpand

The subcoronary Toronto stentless versus supra-annular Perimount stented replacement aortic valve: early clinical and hemodynamic results of a randomized comparison in 160 patients.
BACKGROUND A stentless valve is expected to be hemodynamically superior to a stented valve. The aim of this study was to compare early postoperative hemodynamic function and clinical events in aExpand

Prognostic benefit of transcatheter aortic valve implantation compared with medical therapy in patients with inoperable aortic stenosis
Objectives: To compare survival in patients with inoperable aortic stenosis who undergo transcatheter aortic valve implantation against those managed medically. Background: Without surgicalExpand
